comment Birds sitting on electric wires: potential difference between their feet
@kinokijuf agreed a little but definately worth all of my +1 for the presentation alone.

comment How do the Einstein's differential equation of the curvature of spacetime come out of Einstein's field equation?
@Dimension10 I don't think it's deserving of a downvote either but a and b could just as easily be subscript and g R and T have not been declared so they could also be anything at all, really. It is better to write things out explicitly so that equations have meaning and the answer is more complete.

comment Why isn't temperature measured in units of energy?
I saw ;-) I do also see what you mean now about the degrees of freedom bit now. I think I misused the word depend there. I'll change it.

@Dilaton I don't think energy and temperature are the same thing. This is what I am saying with the derivation. It is a bit of an aside but essentially it should just to show that temperature has a dimension of its own.
